A FLASH FLOOD WATCH will go into effect at NOON and last through MIDNIGHT from most of Southern Colorado. Scattered afternoon and evening thunderstorms will be more than capable of producing very heavy rain once again. Burn scars and areas that saw heavy rain yesterday will be under the greatest risk for flash flooding. The 11 Breaking Weather Team will be tracking this threat all day for you.
Colorado Springs fire investigators are looking into what caused a house fire just before 7 p.m., Monday night.
We spoke to the daughter of the homeowner, she says she went to the home to see what state it was left in after the tenants had left.
The door was open and smoke and flames could be seen from where she was standing. She called for help right away.
Fire crews say the fire was small, no one was injured and the home is not a total loss.
The daughter of the homeowner says she doesn't believe the tenant had anything to do with the fire, but is suspicious that the front door was open.
Officials are hoping to be able to tell if the fire was intentionally set or not.. They should have some answers Tuesday morning.
